Bangkok shophouse partially collapses in the rain

An abandoned shophouse in Bangkok’s Bang Plat district partially collapsed last night. No one was injured as the three-unit shop house, spread over four floors on Soi Charansanitwong 96/2 in Bang Or subdistrict, had been empty for a while.

Officials said the fourth and third floors collapsed onto the lower floors, causing glasses and pieces of wood, and concrete, to fall on the soi below. The collapse occurred during heavy rain and strong winds in the capital.

Police and Bang Plad district officials rushed to the scene and erected a barricade to declare the building off-limits awaiting checks by engineers as to whether the entire building will have to be demolished or not.
